Google announces renaming Android Q to Android 10: What are the new features of Android 10?

As the tenth version of Android, the name change of Android 10 and the design change of Android logo do not seem to be that simple. On the one hand, the new naming method is inclusive and easy for more people to accept. On the other hand, Android 10 is a major upgrade in itself. Behind the dramatic changes in appearance, is there anything else worth noting about Android 10?
We're out of desserts. The new system is called Android 10.
Starting with the Android 1.6 version of Cupcake, Android is named after a dessert every time a major version upgrade is made. Android Lollipop, Android Marshmallow, and Android Nougat.Google have explained why we do this: because Android devices make life sweet, we name each version of Android after dessert.
Every time before the new code is released, netizens are also keen to guess which dessert Google will use as the code name for the new system. Awkwardly, there are too few desserts that start with Q. Foreign netizens chose Qurabiya, Quindim, Qottab, Chinese netizens said it would be better to call QQ sugar. But none of them are common desserts, and it's hard for everyone to accept them.
Google named the new system Android 10 for the same reason. Google said on his official blog that the way desserts are named is interesting, but not everyone understands what it means. In some languages, there is no distinction between L and R, and it is difficult to distinguish between versions if you are not familiar with the naming rules of Android. Some desserts are not popular everywhere.
Given Google's dream of meeting the next billion users, such a change is a matter of course. Although digital naming is boring, it embodies the open spirit of Android and can be accepted by more people.
The Android robot turned dark green and became part of logo
Another change is the redesign of Android logo. The original logo is green Android text, the new logo turned the text into black, but also added the Android robot to become part of the logo. The change is also "for everyone," and for some people with visual impairment, green is not easy to identify. The new Android logo uses black text, and the Android robot has become a darker green.
What are the important new features of Android 10?
The change in Android 10 is not only reflected in the name, the system itself is also a major upgrade. Android 10 changed the default navigation mode to "gesture navigation," and the experience is similar to iOS. Slide back to the desktop, hover into the application background, slide back to the left and right edges, and slide the navigation bar to switch the background application.
Android 10 finally supports global dark mode (dark theme background). The adaptation of the system and BYOD is relatively perfect, and the adaptation of third-party applications may have to wait until the official version is released.
Notification management is optimized in Android 10. Set permissions to “priority”, and the notification sounds and appears in the drop-down notification bar, the status bar, and the lock screen. Set to “Silent”, the notification is muted and displayed in the drop-down notification bar and status. Android 10 further adds the feature of "adaptive notification", which automatically sets low-priority notifications to silent notification mode and provides jump advice in notifications.
In fact, before Android 10, the naming of Android was done at the same time as numbers and letters. Changing the name will not affect the internal use of letters as code names in Google, but we will no longer know what kind of dessert it represents.
At present, Android 10 has launched Beta 6, which is also the last test version. We expect to be able to meet with the official version of Android 10 in the near future.
